Default Oyster Run Again!

Hi Guys,

Don't forget, if you are in the Pacific Northwest, the up-coming Oyster Run. Tens of thousands of Harleys and metric clones, sport bikes, vintage restored bikes on display---and, last year--under a dozen sidecars! (Yes, it's an exclusive club.....yes, I'm proud....)

The last Sunday in September is the day, Anacortes, Washington is the place. Usually people ride a loop of the county, hitting various small stands and pubs for all oysters of all varieties: baked, BBQ, raw---name it, you can get it!

But the highlight is the bikes---we take over the whole downtown, like a tiny, mini Sturgis. It's great. It's free--just bring lots of sunscreen and plan to wolf down lots of the ocean's bounty (or burgers if ya want) and check out all the bike-related vendors. A great way to spend a day!

I'll be there on Jaelith, my '77 Yammie XS650 with the gold sidecar. Look for me if you show up---I'll have the only gold chair there, I guarantee it! (Now watch---there'll be six of 'em!)

It will be fun!

Why would one need sunscreen in Washington?

It acts like "Rain-X" for your body - the rain just slides right off, the faster you go........

Now, now, Boys---be nice. We catch a glimpse of that old "USO" (Unidentified Shining Object") once in awhile......

In fact, last year my nose peeled! Besides, so you ride in a little rain---it's worth it for the oysters!

"boogers" and "tasty" are two mutually-exclusive words that should never be used in the same sentence. Although I'll agree that oysters taste like snot............
